About our Shingle Roof Repair services

Since you’ve discovered this page, you might be wondering if your shingle roof is repairable, or you're looking for someone to repair it. Or maybe you are considering doing the work yourself.

What Are The Main Reasons a Shingle Roof Leaks?

Roof repairs for leaks are the biggest reason people in Kent, IA call us. Sometimes it's just the flashing or some ridge cap that's come loose, and some caulking or a few shingles will set everything right. Sometimes there's missing shingle tabs that have torn off from the wind, which can expose nails or open a crack which leads to a leaky roof. Hail is also a common cause of leaky roofs in Iowa. A leak that has been there for a while may have caused further hidden damage, which you will need to take into consideration as well. The longer you wait, the more likely it will become that this one little leak will spread and destroy your home, quite literally.

Can I Repair a Shingle Roof on my Own?

So, what's the problem? The problem is that you might not be able to tell if your roof needs repair or if it just needs a little TLC. And, even worse, you don't know how long that crack has been there for and whether or not it's already caused damage. Chances are it's better to look for a professional who can inspect your entire roof and find out why there's a leak, then call us at Cook Roofing Company. We've been doing this for years and we'll give you an honest assessment of what needs to be done right away and what can wait until next year. You don't want to have problems with your home that could have been easily prevented by calling someone who knows their stuff! We can help!

You won't have to worry about spending money on repairs until you're sure they're needed because our inspections are always free!

Wind Damage and Missing Shingles

If you have a few shingles missing, it's a more complicated repair. If your roof is newer (ten years or so), it may still be possible to lift the shingles above the damaged ones, remove those, replace them, and seal things back up. It's also possible to damage the 6-9 other shingles you'll have to disrupt for each damaged shingle. Shingle tabs get torn by wind, which more often than not insurance will cover. Sometimes shingles are simply frail and damaged from wear and tear. The safest course of action is just to have us come out and inspect your roof, afterwards we'll tell you if there's more extensive damage, and whether the roof is repairable. We'll evaluate your roof and give you a free estimate, which you can give to your insurance company if needed. If you give us a call at 515-305-3253, we can give you our expert advice.

Shingle Roof Repair Examples

Here are some examples of things that look like a simple repair, but aren't.

Kent Hail Storm Damage

If you have hail damage, especially if it's bad enough to cause leaks, nine times out of ten you will need a new roof. Some hail damage is obvious, and others are a challenge to see even with years of experience. We are trained to spot hail damage, we can give you a storm report for your address to back up your claim, and an estimate to send to your insurance carrier. Kent, IA has been hit by hail numerous times in the past few years, so call Cook Roofing Company for a roof evaluation and estimate, on us. If it's an insurance claim, you'll only be out your deductible, and we can finance that.

How Expensive is Roofing?

It really depends on what the damage causing the leak is. If storm damage caused the leak, (providing your insurance covers storm damage) then the most you should be responsible for out of pocket is your deductible. We do offer deductible financing ( even though we'd love to waive your deductible, that would be illegal. Beware of any roofing company who offers this, because it's insurance fraud). A free roof inspection would be the first step in determining cost of the repairs. There's no obligation. Minor repairs may be even less than your deductible and there'd be no need to file a claim, however hidden damage could be very expensive. If you leave a leak neglected though, you can wind up with extensive hidden damage that isn't covered by insurance because you waited too long. It's better to find out the extent of the damage so we can stop it, and see if insurance will cover it, than just ignore it or procrastinate. Please give us a call or contact us with the form.

Must I Get more Than One Roof Estimate?

No, not technically. Insurance companies usually only suggest doing this so that way they can get your roof replaced for as cheap as they can. Cook Roofing Company could provide you with an accurate estimate, and a new roof for a fair price that is backed by our Lifetime Workmanship Warranty- which is rarely available through other roofers in {iss_city_name]. We will price match any other contractors offer, so long as it allows for all of the materials required for the job to be done right. Other roofers might try to skim a little off the top, or cheat you by saying you don’t need new flashing, or new drip edges, Cook Roofing Company doesn’t cut corners though. We do the work you and your insurance paid us for and we get it done the right way so you can have peace of mind where your roof is concerned. If you want upgrades such as premium shingles, high craftsman windows, or a metal roof it might not be covered by your insurance claim though. We are not the cheapest in town, but we are the fairest, with the craftsmanship to get your roof repaired or replaced, while backed by the industries best warranty. so what are you waiting for? Give us a call at 515-305-3253 and we'll be happy to help.

FAQ

Can a shingle roof be patched?
Patching can work out when there isn't that much damage to your shingle roof. However, patchwork won't always solve your problem; a roof is a complicated system designed to protect your home from the elements, and there might be more damage under the shingles that you may not notice on your own. So, call a professional roofing service to, at the very least, evaluate the damage to your roof and recommend whether to use simple patchwork to fix the problem.
Can a shingle roof be repaired?
If the damage is minimal, then yes, a shingle roof can be repaired without too much trouble. A properly installed asphalt shingle roof will require very little maintenance. Asphalt shingles can be easy to remove and replace. Because of their low price, and low maintenance, asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof in the US.
Can you replace only a few shingles?
If the damage to the shingles is not severe, then yes. If it's a substantial leak in your roof, the flashing on your roof under the damaged shingles may also be damaged, and tearing up a few shingles to replace the broken ones may cause more damage to the flashing (which would just prolong the underlying problem). On the other hand, if the damage to the shingle is nothing to sneeze at (such as a tiny crack), you may not even have to replace the shingles; you could just apply a sealant to seal the crack.
